Spreading the Good Stuff Live Q&A returns for its 7th instalment on Thursday December 5 for an evening of Gratitude and Giving Thanks from 5.30 – 7.30pm at Junction Moama.
Escape the festive season frazzle and join the entire Spreading the Good Stuff Podcast Team (Christy, Leonie and Katrina) for a live recorded podcast conversation around the benefits of practicing gratitude and giving thanks.
At this festive, social gathering we will share our thoughts on the benefits of practicing gratitude in our homes and within our regional communities and will also discuss how even in the worst of times, there is always room for giving thanks. The conversation will include inspiring examples of both and will be followed by a communal thanksgiving grazing style meal and social gathering.
The Spreading the Good Stuff Live Q&A series commenced in June 2016 and examines the lives of extraordinary individuals within our regional communities who are making a positive difference in their patch.
Since its inception, these extraordinary, sold out events have covered profound and important conversations around suicide and mental health, living with disability and inclusion, foster care and adoption, people with passion, living with grief and sustainable living.
These conversations explore some of the big issues, challenges and opportunities of our time and always leave our audience enriched, enlarged and inspired to spread more of their own good in the world.
A succession of successful live Q&A events prompted the STGS team to expand its offering to a podcast in May 2018. This fortnightly podcast has since been listened to more than 13,500 times, with many previous Q&A live conversations shared as podcast episodes, with listeners tuning in from across the country. This event is a thank you to our loyal band of podcast listeners.
We’d love you to be part of the audience for this special live podcast recording on December 5!
Tickets are $35, strictly limited and must be purchased prior to the event. Included in the ticket price is a complimentary glass of bubbles and nibbles. Get your tickets here.

Spreading The Good Stuff Episode 6: A Conversation about Grief is here.
We’re excited to be back with co-hosts Junction, Moama for our sixth LIVE conversation event on Wednesday November 28, 2018.
Episode 6 will bring together two brave local women for an important discussion about what grief looks like, their own personal experiences and importantly how well we deal with ‘grief’ as a community.
Together with mental health social worker Tracey Farrell, of Hidden Treasure Therapy, and the brave and determined mother of baby Ruby (now in heaven) Shari Gotch, we will discuss the challenges, misconceptions and mystery of grief.
Join us for this profound conversation, which we know will be an insightful evening for all those who attend.

Sponsored by Junction Moama, #spreadingthegoodstuff events examine the lives of extraordinary individuals in our region who are making a positive impact in their patch.
The conversation series builds on our crusade to promote positive communication and the power of kind language across our regional communities.
Each event includes a live conversation hour where we explore some of the big issues, challenges and opportunities of our time – leaving you enriched, enlarged and empowered to spread more of your own good in the world.
We are thrilled to announce Episode 3 ‘The Care Factor’, featuring special guest Jaki Osborne in the Q&A hot seat. We’ll be diving deep with this incredible woman to explore foster care and adoption in our community.
For those of you yet to cross paths with Jak, she and her husband Brent truly are humans of a rare and beautiful breed.
The couple and their three biological children Jemma (18), Jye (16), and Ned (14) have been opening their hearts and home to foster children in the Echuca Moama region for 10 years.
The pair – who have just notched up 20 years of marriage – have cared for 20 foster children over the past decade, for lengths of time ranging from one night stays to seven year placements.
In addition to their three biological children, they currently have one child in permanent care, Niya (8), and a three year old foster child who, for legal reasons, cannot be named.
“I had always wanted to foster,” said Jaki.
“I remember seeing foster care advertisements on television growing up and deciding then and there it was something I should do. Having my own children confirmed even more that we needed to step up and help out where we could.
“The thought of a child being subject to a poor environment or a home with no love was heartbreaking to me after having such a great family life as a child.
“When you have that you just presume it’s what every other child has also. When I realised that wasn’t the case, I couldn’t just sit back in my happy life and pretend that it was.”
Join us for an intimate experience on June 1, as we share Jaki’s story and delve into the shadows of this deeply personal subject.
Tickets are $30, strictly limited and must be purchased prior to the event day.
Included in your ticket price is a complimentary glass of sparkling wine and nibbles.
